How do you transform a garage into a working glass studio? There are several steps.
Click through the slides below to learn how I crafted my ideal creative space.
Before I started breaking glass, I needed a place to create.
The first step was to make room in the garage for my glass adventure.
I had a workbench ... but quickly discovered that I wanted to dedicate more space to my glass work.
I needed a spot for glass sheets. I designed this cabinet and had a woodworker build it for me.
LED lights make it easy to find the exact color I want for a project.
Next I designed my primary workbench. I love the paper holder on the end.
Lots of shelves to store my molds.
The molds were right at home. My small kiln is in the left corner of this photo.
Kona loves guarding the larger kiln. I like to think she adds more love to each piece of glass we fuse.
Frit comes in lots of colors and sizes. I love glass in all forms.
Shelf fronts are the perfect little spot to display my glass color swatches.
My favorite power tool is my lap grinder. It is a giant flat wet sanding wheel.
I use my tile saw for cutting thick glass slabs.
I hope you enjoyed my studio tour.
